    I just made this salsa for the first time and I found the flavour quite authentic. Having lived in Texas for 10 years I love mexican and spicy foods. I loved the balance of lime and coriander, but I prefer my salsa to have a little more body to it, so its not so sloppy. Despite using whole canned tomatoes and only slightly blending them I had to add some roughly chopped tomato without the inners. Lovely flavour though, will defo make it again...thanks!!!!! - 03 Sep 2011
